Co-presented by Outfest: AUNTIE MAME, 1958, Warner Bros., 143 min. Dir. Morton DaCosta. Outfest continues its holiday tradition with its ninth annual screening of AUNTIE MAME. Rosalind Russell is in fine form as the jet-setting, Park Avenue aunt who suddenly becomes guardian to her young nephew. Free-spirited Mame takes the boy on irreverent escapades through the bohemian 1920s, the ravages of the Great Depression, the trials of her many loves and her ploy for social justice. "Live! Life's a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!"- Auntie Mame. [35mm]
Pre-screening reception at 6:00 PM, sponsored by Absolut Vodka.
